Blessed with rivers and a series of seven waterfalls, Mambukal Mountain Resort sits on the foot Mt. Kanlaon, an active volcano in Murcia. The nature resort is owned and managed by the Provincial Government of Negros Occidental and was constructed according to the natural terrain of the place. Located 1,200 feet above sea level, the place is a cool haven for Bacolodnons and tourists even during summer. What started as a bathhouse and picnic garden is now a go-to vacation spot for the Negrenses.

This holiday, take comfort and rest at the lush forested area, go on an adventure and trek up to the 7th falls, or take a dip at the resort’s hot sulfuric pool. With all the therapeutic advantages nature can bring, spending some time away from the city during the holidays with the family is a much-deserved treat before the year ends. Read on to see the activities and picturesque views Mambukal Mountain Resort offers.


1. There are thrilling activities for adrenaline junkies.

At an affordable price, tourists can enjoy adrenaline-packed activities like the 200-meter zip line (PhP50), wall-climbing (PhP25), and canopy walk (PhP50). You can challenge yourself and your friends with the ascending path through the hanging bridge or see who can climb the fastest. You need to burn that grilled pork barbeque you ate during lunch! There is also something for those who like to commune with nature: set up a tent at the resort’s designated camping (PhP50/person) grounds and disconnect with the trees.



2. Relax at the resort’s pools and gardens.

Feeling cold? Take a dip at the resort’s hot sulfuric pool (PhP50) and have the rejuvenating effect from the minerals and sulfur of Mambukal’s natural spring water. Children can also enjoy the two swimming pools (PhP50) and see the beautiful bugs and butterflies at the butterfly garden (PhP20). You can also go boating (PhP30) while enjoying the lush view of the trees surrounding the lagoon. If you want something natural and fresh, let the river’s water flow into your soul.

Another relaxing attraction of the resort is the Ishiwata Bath House (PhP100/30 minutes), which offers Japanese-style bathing where guests can have privacy while relaxing. The bathhouse was built by Kokichi Ishiwata in 1927 before the resort was even established. To provide solitude to the bathers, it is divided into five cubicles.


3. Test your endurance and trek up to the 7th Falls.

Connecting and being one with nature can let you destress and boost your health. Trekking up to the 7th waterfalls will test your endurance, and once you’ve reached the spot, you will be rewarded with a cold atmosphere and the relaxing sound of falling water. On the way to the 7th falls, you can see some bats and indigenous birds hanging from tall trees – keep your ears and eyes wide open. You can also experience forest bathing, a method of being calm and quiet among the trees while breathing deeply as you take a break from your ascending walk on the mountain resort.



A tour guide who is familiar with the passage will escort groups that want to visit the 7th falls. Some would do a stopover and cliff dive or take a plunge on the 6th falls. Proper trekking attire is strongly encouraged and slippers are forbidden during the hike. If the weather is gloomy, trekking is sometimes not allowed.


4. Enjoy local cuisine on the river at “Kaon ta sa Suba”.

A hearty Filipino lunch greets the day tour guests at the river. The newest attraction, “Kaon Ta Sa Suba” (let’s eat on the river) allows you to feast on native cuisine while enjoying the scenery and the cool breeze under the trees. Situated on the river, guests can also dip their feet on the river’s water, which brings them back to the joys of the past – when Negrenses ate with their feet soaking at the cold gushing river. This package (PhP499/person) includes the entrance fee, lunch buffet, and access to swimming and dipping pools.
